tablespoon

Ingredients

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup pureed silken tofu
  • 1/2 cup chopped semisweet or bittersweet chocolate (2 3/4 oz.), or semisweet chocolate chips

Preparation

  1. Place tofu in small bowl. (The smaller amount of tofu makes a fudgy, dark ganache; the larger amount makes more of a creamy spread.)
  2. Melt chocolate in top of double boiler set over barely simmering (not boiling) water. When half-melted, remove from heat and stir until creamy. With a rubber spatula, scrape melted chocolate into tofu and stir until well blended. Use immediately or cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 4 days. Bring to room temperature before using.
